Quote from Blanche in All Bets Are Off

Blanche: I, uh, I would lend you my pass to the jockeys' lounge, but you don't want to date a jockey. The sex is over too fast, and afterwards the only nice thing they have to say to you is, "Good girl, good girl."


 ‘All Bets Are Off’ Quotes

Quote from Rose

Rose: I have to get a horse in this picture while it's still fresh in my mind. I don't know whether to paint Old Silver, the horse who brought the news to St. Olaf that the British had no intention of coming or Old Brisker, the horse who, because of a printing error on the ballot slips, was elected water commissioner for six months.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: Well, Dorothy, I'm worried about you.
Dorothy: Oh, please, don't you start. I had a problem 15 years ago. That's a long time. I've learned a little something since then. A lot has happened. And I've lived with the temptations. [exits]
Blanche: Well, isn't that something? You think you know somebody, then you find out something like this. Hard to believe.
Rose: I'll say. To think Dorothy's lived with The Temptations. I've never even been to one of their concerts.

Quote from Dorothy

Sophia: What the hell were you doing at the racetrack?
Dorothy: Oh, Ma, come on, you're making too much of this. I haven't gambled in 15 years. And I didn't put down any bets for myself today, either. It was just nice to know that I could still pick a winner.
Sophia: This from a woman who's got a Dukakis bumper sticker covering up her Mondale bumper sticker?
Dorothy: Look, Ma, I admit that once I did have a small gambling problem.
Sophia: A small problem? You bet against your own son's Little League team!
Dorothy: Ma, I had to. I knew that their star pitcher had after-school detention.
Sophia: You were his teacher, you gave him detention.
